Ranking Denver's Units



QB 3 Orton is currenlty a top 16 QB , He may improve this year
RB 4 or 5 If Moreno plays this group could be better, but with all of the injuries it's 4th stringers
WR 3 At the moment this group has potential, but has to prove it.  Jabbar Gaffney, Eddie Royal, and Brandon Lloyd are not household names. 
TE 3 This unit blocks well, but lacks in the passcatching department
OL 3 The unit as a whole is young, inexperienced, or injured.  Ryan Clady keeps this unit ranked above a 4.  Ryan Harris when healthy and on the field with Clady could take this unit to a 2.
DL 3 The D-line of McBean, Williams, and Bannan are good, but not pro-bowl yet.  This is their first year together.  They could improve. If Jamal Williams goes down with an injury this unit drops to a 4.
LB 4 Without Dumervil this group is below average.  The OLBs are Ayers and Moss who aren't the best at run defense and have yet to show they can be a force in pass rushing.  DJ Williams and Mario Haggan are servicable at ILB, but seem to miss the holes that RBs pick on a regular basis.  THis unit is most responsible for the poor rush defense
CB 1 Champ Bailey is stil a top 3 CB.  Andre Goodman is not too shaby either.
S 2 Brian Dawkins and Renaldo Hill are one of the better Safety tendems in the league.  B-Dwak is the enforcer and Hill is the ball hawk.
Kicker 3 Matt Prater is a good young kicker who is getting better
Punter 2 Colquiit is a pro bowl caliber punter.  He can boom it.
Retuner 3 Denver looks like they may be using Rookie Parrish Cox as their returner.  He could elevate the return game.  
Average of Units 2.73
